Hikes that End in a Splash

The forecast calls for sunshine again this weekend. Here are some hikes that end with you jumping into some cool water! Let’s go!

More Drive-In Movies!

Drive-in movies are making a comeback at Haub Family Field at LeMay — America’s Car Museum in Tacoma. There are four movies lined up for the month of August, beginning with Frozen II on Saturday, August 1.

Talking to Kids About Race

Open communication is always something to feel good about. Many families are talking about race and justice. Children are naturally curious, and possibly concerned, about what they’re seeing and hearing. Help your kids join this important national conversation in a productive way. Dr. Chris Ladish, the Chief Clinical Officer of Pediatric Behavioral Health at Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital and Health Network in Tacoma offers guidance. Learn more here.

Sumner Parklets are Awesome

Sumner installed two parklets in downtown to help local businesses expand their outdoor spaces. It was funded through the Complete Streets program and built by Daniel Davenport on the City of Sumner facilities staff. Creative solutions and people helping people — that is all good!

Reunited and it Feels Good

Pierce County is holding a Family Reunification Celebration today, July 31. This day celebrates children and parents who are coming back together after being involved with the foster care system. This year’s event looks different due to COVID-19. There will be a drive-thru parade, gift baskets, cake pops, and applauses from judges and others to celebrate families reuniting after committing to a lot of work. Congrats!

Make Boozy Summer Shakes

We have an idea how adults can cool off this weekend … Grown-up milkshakes! Or just make a shake without alcohol for the whole crew. Recipes here.
